Win Forgiven-CLOSED


Taken From Janet's website:
Summary: FORGIVEN is a not-quite-sequel to FAITHFUL; in this second novel I follow the story of Kula Baker, a secondary character in FAITHFUL, to San Francisco in 1906. The novel is a romance and mystery and, like FAITHFUL, largely a coming-of-age story that takes my characters through the tumultuous, exciting city of San Francisco of that time and through the great earthquake and fires that so devastated the city in April of that year.



But I do want to mention that one of the subplots in FORGIVEN deals with the exploitation of children/child slavery. It is a facet of the history of Kula's time and place that I discovered during my research, and I couldn't, for obvious reasons, ignore it. I feel that it's important to turn the spotlight on this issue because, tragically, it still exists.

I think it is so important to address the issue of child-slavery. Sad, is it not, that it still exists, all these years!?!? makes you wonder, have we really evolved at all, as humans!?!? :( The cover is absolutely gorgeous, would love a chance to read this! :)

Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

I love the historical fiction from the early 1900's in America. Seeing these women realize there is more to life than marriage is fascinating.
Toss my name in please!
